Could this be our own Robertb?

I'm new to the forums, so perhaps this has already been threshed out in detail.

If not, you might enjoy this YouTube clip.

I'm pretty sure that is Robertb, I think it was confirmed in another thread a while back.

Dear GA Russell:

Yes, it is me. Now realize it was after having been in Las Vegas for another show about 6 days before this picture was taken and I looked like hell from lines of women wanting to meet me and being chased by bartenders all over town... but, yes, it is me. Be kind! I had about 4 hours of sleep and had gotten to the Expo Center at 5:30 a.m. for a press meeting.

I like that video. you've just earned +10 respect and +5 street cred in my book.

I've pictured you as a middle aged white guy.

Instead your more like someone I might be friends with. God the internet sucks.

I wonder what people think I'm like behind the picture of AL Capone, which I only picked for this website, cause it matched the color scheme.

bartenders seem to have this thing about being paid, order the drink, pay them

order a bunch of drinks, order a bunch of drinks to attract the women, and not pay the bartenders then will chase you all over town

sometimes with a razor

robertb, pay the bartenders or don't drink, pay the bartenders or don't order drinks for the women

do your interviews sober or you say stuff like agreeing that sony only uses drm ebooks

oh yeah. totally loaded with misinformation.

I expect that when dealing with a company.

a company should always misrepresent the competition at all times.
I think that's a rule or something.

Mobipocket wasn't supported when the video was recorded.

First off, your opening comments make absolutely no sense to me.

Secondly, I don't think he was drunk. I have seen 2 or 3 videos with Robert, and he talks the same way in them all. It is simply the way he talks.

It would probably be more polite to ask whether or not he'd had a nip or two that day than to simply assume that he had and commented on it. Talk about misinformation.

There's so much misinformation in that video that I don't even know where to begin:

"The iPod doesn't have an equaliser" (said twice). WRONG. Go to "Settings", then "EQ".

"The Sony will only read DRM-protected books". WRONG

"To put books on the Kindle, you have to send them to Amazon's servers, and back again". WRONG.

Dear Andy:

I must admit your picture of Al Capone does scare a little. I do not know why but my first reaction was "OH MY GOD, Bob, Be Careful!" Since then I have noted you are a nice person and someone I do call friend!

Dear Harry:

That interview was at CES almost 9 months ago. I was new and brash. Boy, have I learned.

I have had an iPod Classic for 5 years and never ever knew it had an equalizer! Thank you. I can use that. Still... I find the music tone on my EZ Reader Basic to be better than my iPod. I have the best Audio-Technica headphones with noise cancelling and switching back and forth, a bunch of the employees tried it and we all agreed.

Did I say the Kindle "only reads DRM eBooks". I meant to say the Kindle strictly limits users to one website they can buy from. Sorry for being wrong!

Dear All:

There is truth here! I was not drunk (of course) but I was very, very tired and swamped at the booth. My legs were killing me. When you have to be the first person at the booth every morning and traffic is awful... you drive in early and sit around or get hit by some tailgator. Anyway, ever since I was about 14 I noticed that I sometimes DO get tongue-tied while talking. My tongue does not move quite as fast as my mind thinks. It is the way I talk. I also type slowly. But... I do get most points across.

I assure you that you find, during CES, that you walk about 14 miles a day and stand for 5 hours. That was fine when I was young.
